any one of bucketheads songs. if you can handle it, soothsayer is great, if not, then maybe go for a classical song, like greensleeves or fur elise. classical gas? asturias? depends what style you're going for.

Play Bron-Y-Aur by led zeppelin

it's an easy, laid back acoustic song

you'll prolly need another guitar cause it's tuned weird

hmm well im more looking for a rock song, but more mellow, im not quite good enough for stuff like Cliffs of Dover, something more along the lines of Always with me Always with you by Satriani

Um, maybe Cliffs of Dover by Eric Johnson? I have it in my head thanks to Guitar Hero

Cliffs of Dover might be a too difficult especially if he is going to do it in 4 days. Here are some that arn't too hard.

Wedding Nails- Porcupine Tree
Erotomania- Dream Theater (improvise the shredding part)
Patterns in the Ivy- Opeth
Surfing with the Alien- Joe Satriani ( isn't that hard)
Summer Song- Joe Satriani ( also isn't that hard)
Orion- Metallica (make sure the bass player can play this one though)

You can try one of bucketheads calmer songs if your looking for mellow. Maybe Electric Tears? It's pretty easy to play, real mellow, and sounds full of emotion if done correctly.

Well i have narrowed down my selection, i think im gonna do Starry night by Joe Satriani, its mellow, its learnable in 3-4 days, and it will be perfect for the type of people who are there. Thanks for all the Ideas guys, Greatly Apreshiated

Call of Ktulu or Orion by Metallica.
Or maybe some Buckethead, if you have the effects, or wish to challenge yourself.
